For those who dare to dabble on the darkside – or at least outside the lines of typical boom bap – Mansion On The Moon have a bag of treats that come fully endorsed by music curators Diplo & Benzi. After collaborating with the likes of N*E*R*D and Chiddy Bang’s Xaphoon Jones, the trio’s debut project Paradise Falls features tracks that are incredibly atmospheric with heady beats designed to keep your ears in the stars.
Combining the group’s infinities with dubstep warbles and spacey synths, MOTM create an ambiance for those who love Drake’s mellower tracks and CuDi’s dreamy soundscapes. “Glimpse Of The Future” sees the group team with Chiddy Bang beatsmith, Xaphoon Jones, over racing bass and schizophrenic keyboards, while “Coldwater” sounds like a lost b-side to an Empire of the Sun album. And, if for nothing else, listen to “Satellite,” Mansion On The Moon’s own pulsing interpretation of Deadmau5′s “Strobe.” It’s pure butter.
